  • Trivia

    • In this episode, the entrance to Jack's vault is behind a revolving bookcase, down a flight of stairs so long he needs binoculars to see the bottom. It's also protected by a moat with an alligator in it.

  • Quotes

    • Jack: Do you remember a song I wrote about 15 years ago called "When You Say I Beg Your Pardon, Then I'll Come Back To You?"
      Rochester:Uh huh
      Jack:Well, I'm gonna revive it.
      Rochester:You're gonna what?
      Jack:You heard me. I'm gonna revive it.
      Rochester:I don't think you can. That song went down for the fourth time.

  • Notes

    • Jack would try and push the same song ("When You Say I Beg Your Pardon, Then I'll Come Back To You") on Lawrence Welk and his orchestra in the 10/23/1962 episode. Everyone in the Lawrence Welk Show would have the same objections to Jack's oddly-chosen lyrics.
